Gnomoria is a sandbox village management game where you help lead a small group of gnomes, who have set out on their own, to thrive into a bustling kingdom! Anything you see can be broken down and rebuilt elsewhere. Craft items, build structures, set traps and dig deep underground in search of precious resources to help your gnomes survive the harsh lands. Build your kingdom and stockpile wealth to attract wandering gnomads to your cause, but be wary of also attracting enemies!

I just wanted to remind everyone that while there hasn't been any news updates here in a while, there have been updates to Gnomoria almost every week. You can always check the Gnomoria website or forums for the latest updates.

This update is the start of an overhaul of crafting and items. Overall, it won't be vastly different from what you're used to. There are around 50 new items this patch, where most of them are intermediate items used to craft workshops or finished goods. Many recipes have had their ingredient quantities reduced but might require more steps to craft from scratch. Job completion times have also been increased across the board.

There is also a stricter progression of workshops now. In order to build a workshop, many require a specific item that is crafted in a different workshop. The first workshop that can be built is a Crude Workbench. This workshop works slower than others but doesn't craft anything that can't be crafted somewhere else. Once other workshops have been built, the Crude Workbench is safe to deconstruct.

When loading old save games, some jobs that are no longer valid will be cancelled. After loading a game, it would be a good idea to just check your workshops to see where you might need to recreate jobs. However, to get the full experience of the changes, I recommend starting a new game with this update.

With an update like this, I'll be closely watching everyone's feedback and expect to make some adjustments. Some things might be much harder or easier now and I'll try to work out the kinks as quick as I can.

I have recently bought this game on desura and I have to say, It`s indeed fun game. It it similar to Towns but it`s easier and somewhat different. Also there are things that are better than in Towns like ability to live completely underground. Despite few bugs it is certainly worth buying.

I can confirm this is a 3D reincarnation of Dwarf Fortress and it seems quite impressive! i would definately try to get you to try this game if Dwarf Fortress intimidates you.

Woah the caverns look truly intimidating in this iso-view. Does anyone know if underground farming is planned? Would be difficult to build a fortress suspended over a magma lake when the gnomes constantly have to climb up to the surface for farming.

Yes, this is planned. RoboB0b has mentioned it on his forum.
"I plan on having some more content later that would open up the possibility to live completely underground."
"I am thinking of adding an underground only crop that requires a one time watering of the soil before it grows. So potentially after every harvest or maybe just once for that plot. I'm also thinking of an underground farm animal (giant mole pasture?) that doesn't have a secondary function and is just for meat.

I think living entirely underground, sealed off from the surface, should be an option but only for the masochists"

If I try to set the window size to 2560*1440 it crashes the game, and repeatedly crashes the game after startup. Just a heads up on that. Very cool otherwise!

For years, I've been hoping and praying that someone... ANYONE would take the concept of a Dwarf Fortress style fantasy village sim game and make it into an actual marketable-quality game. No offense to DF, of course, but it has the accessability of Mt. Everest and a Rubix Cube of a UI. Gnomoria may just be the answer to that prayer. Though the game seems to have come out of nowhere, the functionality, presentation, and potential of this one surpass any alpha I've ever played. The game itself sticks…
